    OC TRANSPO'S 40' BUS ORDERS?

    I find the electric doors on the hybrids open much faster than the sliding air doors on the D40i's (or double deckers). I think the speed really depends on the style of door and I believe LFS's typically have rear doors that are similar to the ones you'd find on the D60LF(R)'s, but just not as wide.

    That smaller maple leaf on the back just... doesn't look as good.
  3. Hurdman? That's one hell of a confusing sign though.

    OC Transpo/STO Mistakes

    The Northwestern entrance of Walkley station as of yesterday morning. Also last night OC Transpo's API reported 4 trips for a route instead of the typical max of 3..

    OC Transpo/STO Mistakes

    The displays on the Trillium Line have been broken since yesterday. The display on the Northbound platform at Carleton just says Bayview 0 and in general they're all just way off.

    GOA transit news, info etc

    The charging station in the photo that was posted last week seemed to be a pop-up station. If they could set those up (instead of installing permanent ones) then I guess it could work. There will be some kind of demonstration tomorrow. https://ottawa.ca/en/news/oc-transpo-hosting-demonstration-electric-bus

    Invero Light Rebuild Project

    The wheelchair chime is just the same tone repeated twice (I think?) The tone I heard was two distinct pitches and played during a regular stop request.

    Since when is Ottawa getting electric buses?

    The overhead electric-bus kind..?

    4226 has a different chime than other buses. It sounds like the regular one (not the obnoxious buzzer that some others have) but with two tones instead of just one. It sounds almost like the tone that plays when the doors open.

    OC Bus Spottings

    Wild guess, but it probably includes "702"

    2019 Nova LFS Order

    Given the current political climate, I would imagine they'd most likely be built in Quebec to avoid any problems with tariffs and stuff. If Nova Bus has another large order being produced at St. Eustache that might explain why we'll apparently be getting a few buses in January followed by the rest a few months later. Possibly related (to politics) possibly not, our 7 new Stadler FLIRTs will be manufactured in Switzerland (and then most likely assembled in Ottawa) despite Stadler having a plant in the US that would be capable of producing them.

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    For anyone interested, R2 (the replacement bus route for the Trillium Line) is also known as Route 702. That's how it shows up in apps at least. 740 -> 107 -> 702/R2 what a wild ride!
  15. St. Patrick's High School recently opened their new parking lot (or rather, the one they re-did). It includes a loop that OC Transpo is now using for school routes rather than having buses parked along Alta Vista in front of the school. Buses now also have to loop through Herongate on their way to the transitway (since they can't turn left on to Heron).
